Ziff, a refuge at one of the Atlas hideouts wants revenge for the murder of her family but can’t decide which of two people have done the crime and it up to you to help her figure things out.

Mission Walkthrough

Investigating The Scenes


Follow the cable that is connected to the vending machine to the power source which will also be marked by a waypoint.


Head over to the first location which is a murder scene where you will determine who have been doing the killing in the area.


It will be unclear which of the two have killed Ziff’s family since it seems like any ordinary Maliwan massacre had occurred which leads her to ask you to check their supply vehicle for clues.


Once you reach the supply vehicle it will still be unclear which of the two have murdered Ziff’s family and she decides to let you pick which of them should be punished.

Killing The Chosen Trooper


Head over to the location where the two are held up so you can bring forth justice to them by your own hands.


Take the elevator going up but be prepared for a battle as you will not only be facing them but also some other enemies.


Fight through the Maliwan troops and make your way towards the two killers and pick out which one should be killed.


To choose one of the two that will be punished, shoot them and they will immediately become hostile and you are to kill them to proceed.

Killing The Remaining Trooper


After killing one of the two murderers, you can either return to Ziff’s to complete the quest or head back as Ziff also asks you to return and kill the other one as a bonus objective.


Head back to the remaining trooper and kill them to complete the bonus objective and head back to Ziff afterwards.


Return to Ziff and talk to her to complete the mission and she will then give you your rewards for killing one or both of them.

Maliwannabees Mission Rewards


After completing the mission, you will be rewarded with around 626 cash and if you have completed the bonus mission, you will get an additional amount of around 208 cash.



  • Bring a vehicle as you will be heading off to different site when investigating as well as to the main area where you will fight the trooper or troopers.
  • Be sure to have a good weapon as the troopers are stronger than most of the enemies that you will face during the mission.
  • Try not to go too far after killing the first trooper so you don’t have to get hassled if you decide to come back for the bonus objective.
